Second Scottish Decision

The Scottish Commissioner has published his second decision under the Scottish Freedom of Information Act.

The complaint involved a request for information about discounts in Council Tax for students made to the City of Edinburgh Council. The Commissioner upheld the complaint, stating that the City of Edinburgh Council had not complied with the law in the way in which it responded to Ms Gilchrist’s request for information. The decision also stresses the importance of authorities providing information to his office promptly during the course of investigations.
